The countdown to this year’s ‘Great Digital Film Festival’ is on! Cineplex Events has announced the line-up for its seventh annual celebration of pop-culture films, returning to select Cineplex theatres across Canada from February 5 – 11, 2016.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
